    my head tells me that instead of wasting all this money I might have some money to be able to live under the same roof with my hubby which hasn't been happening 4 years now...on the other hand, we are not under the same roof or in the same city but we are in the same country and that's improvement already!

    Why is my teacher so preoccupied with my sweating? Is it something I did? I always sweat a lot, what can I do to fix it? Just get out of her way, I guess. But still, how come no one else ever complains? Is it because she doesn't like me and has no other way to say it? Why do I bother so much for her to like me?

    Need to practice, need to practice, need to practice. Competing in a month. Prechamp. Not ready for this. Oh, wait, you did really well last year in novice. Time to move up. Except, nope, not ready. Practice, practice, practice. Wish I didn't have so much other stuff to do so I could have more partner practice time. Prechamp. Crap.

    Rear wheel drive, no squirrels.

    Rear wheel drive = push off of the standing foot; don't throw the moving foot out there and then try to pull to it.

    Squirrels = flying feet.

    Resurrecting an old thread:

    Give the follow time to finish what you lead before you lead something else.

    Oh, thank you (which is both a voice in my head and a response to Cornutt's voice)
  14. body-hip-body-hip-body-hiiippp (this is a turn); fan -oh! was that supposed to be a fan? no - a rock step... Exhale - be sharp!
    forwardforwardforwardforward - STOP.

    The start to my current chacha.

    "The voices in your head"

    Oh, you mean Brenda?

    "Wow, yeah, you're not doing that right. When your coach does it, she's way more flexible in the back than you are. You'll never get that right. Oh, you're going to try? Aw, look at you! /baby voice/ You're twy-ing!"

    "Haven't you had, like, four lessons on that already? Clearly you're never going to get it. You should probably just resign yourself to looking like you do."

    /files nails/ "That's the new choreography?" /goes back to filing nails/

    "Your partner is going to hate the way you're doing that. I'm just saying."

    "You know you need to be lifted in the ribcage - dang, don't stick your chest out that far, cripes, you'll put someone's eyes out. How many dancers have bodies like yours again? I'll wait."

    Sigh. Brenda.

    It's easier said than done sometimes. That timer keeps ticking in my head. I'm working on it.
